Covered with shiny beads of early morning dew
Out sparkling a d grade flawless diamond!
Busy spider has spun gossamer threads
Web builder extraordinaire is poised
Ever ready to pounce on unwary
Bugs which she will wrap in silk for her dinner!

Jan, You captured the essence of a spider web perfectly. I always catch the spiders in my house and put them in my garden and they thank me with spidery masterpieces just like the one you described.

So beautifully done, Jan. I can relate as I have a spider who builds an enormous web between the porch and the garage every October. I let no one touch it. When it has raindrops on it, it sparkles like the prettiest diamond in the world. Love this one!
